What is Firestarter?
Firestarter is an Open Source visual firewall program. The software aims to combine ease of use with powerful features, therefore serving both Linux desktop users and system administrators.
We strongly believe that your job is to make the high level security policy decisions and ours is to take care of the underlying details. This is a departure from your typical Linux firewall, which has traditionally required arcane implementation specific knowledge.
Active development stopped in 2005.

- added Firestarter as alternative(s) to ufw KDE
- reviewed FirestarterThis is hands down the best firewall UI I've ever used. Super easy to make a whitelist. Ask someone to attempt to do what you want while tailing the access log, click on the log entry and allow it as narrowly as you like. Someone should fork it if it needs attention. GUFW and others don't have that functionality and it's always a pain to deal with their klunky UIs compared to FireStarter.
